Texas Governor Perry on Peter Robinson’s Uncommon Knowledge
The setup for the video below reads: “Texas Governor Rick Perry (R) talks to Peter Robinson about his career in Texas and his race for the White House. Perry speaks candidly about his presidential aspirations, and how they were thwarted by back surgery and a late entrance into the race. He also talks about why Texas is succeeding and California is failing when it comes to jobs and the economy. Is it as simple as low taxes and simpler regulations? Find out.”
Our favorite quote from this video (of several):
Upon Peter Robinson’s reading of a Paul Krugman (NYT economics columnist) quote denigrating Texas as having no useful lessons on how to restore national full employment (even though the Fed says that Texas, with 8% of the U.S. population accounted for 49.9% of all of the job growth of the country from June 2009 to June 2011), Governor Perry responds glibly: “It really makes you question the Nobel Prizes, doesn’t it. … What are the standards?”
Right on, Governor Perry.
Ironically Texas is making the current administration look better on jobs than it deserves.
Note Perry’s comments on the Fed and printing money.
Worthy of sharing.
